PALOS HILLS, IL — As technology progresses, the nursing program at Moraine Valley Community College is following suit, having completed its first cohort using virtual reality in class and purchasing high fidelity simulators.

Last month, nursing classes at the main campus in Palos Hills and at the Education Center at Blue Island used 25 Oculus headsets and specific software to simulate being in a hospital and treating a patient. With the headset on, students walk into a virtual hospital room, talk to a patient who responds and relays symptoms, and the students must decide on treatment. Sometimes the patient becomes unstable, and students need to call the doctor or help the patient recover. They even can look at charts and X-rays as if they were really in the room with a patient.

Using Virtual Reality to Improve Communication and Collaboration in Nursing Teams

Nursing is a profession that requires not only technical skills, but also soft skills such as critical thinking, decision making, empathy, confidence, teamwork, and smooth communication. But how can less experienced nurses develop their soft skills in terms of judgment, communication, and teamwork for better patient outcomes? Simulations allow nurses to practice and improve clinical reasoning, teamwork, and resilience in a realistic, controlled, high-pressure but safe environment. That’s the value of simulation; it’s a chance to make mistakes, analyze and reflect on performance, determine the possible fixes, and build muscle memory without real-world consequences from errors.
